Love the change of the season in the northeast. A time for change of clothes, the leaves turning colors, football, and fall festivities, including pumpkin!
From Charlotte Haigh’s book, “The Top 100 Immunity Boosters– 100 Recipes to Keep Your Immune System Fighting Fit.”
-1 medium pumpkin, cut into thick slices
-1.5 cups plain wholewheat flour
-1/2 tsp. salt
-1/2 tsp. baking powder
-2 tsp. ground cumin
-Yolk & white of 1 egg
-3/4 cup water
-1 onion, chopped
-2 garlic cloves, crushed
-2 tbsp. olive oil
Directions: Steam the pumpkin for 10 minutes, then leave to cool. In a bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and cumin, then add the egg yolk and the water, a little at a time, stirring to form a smooth paste.
Add the onion and garlic, then whisk the egg white and fold it in to the mixture. Heat the oil in a skillet, then dip the pumpkin slices in the mixture and fry a few at a time, turning regularly until crisp and brown. Serve warm.
